I’m a searching the net far and wide. From Google, to Facebook, to Tumblr, everywhere and anywhere, for pictures of Women of Color in Gothic, Lolita, and any other Alternative Fashion outfits. For some strange reason, I find it harder to find these pictures.
I think it’s shame that some people out there think that the Alternative Fashions, that are most commonly seen on white people, has no place in the Black community. Well I’m here to tell my Darker skinned girls who want to do this, that there IS a place for you. Don’t let anyone tell you any different. :)
Also, I am aware that there are rules as to what a Lolita is, and what she can and can’t wear; however, as we all know, rules sometimes can be broken. Not every picture will be exactly Lolita or Gothic, some will just have certain aesthetics that I think would look good with the fashion. Be creative, be unique, be you.
This site was created for the purpose of expanding the knowledge of Lolita Fashion, from Sweet Lolita, to Kodona, to Gothic Lolita, to Aristocrat and so-on, and also to building a large and friendly community of Lolitas to discuss the fashion we love.
The Lolita Handbook:
This journal is meant as a way to ease beginners into the fashion and provide resources to more experienced Lolitas - it is by no means a rule book. Take only what you want from this and use it to help you develop your own personal style.
EGL: The Elegant Gothic & Lolita Community
Our mission is help others share, grow, and learn in the Lolita fashion. The community discussions focus on Japanese Lolita fashion and its manifestations the world over.
